An interesting tool
I recieved the 12"" pan as a gift, and after searching on the net for information and recipies I came to the conclusion that a wok ring would be needed to balance and keep the pan a little higher off the flame. I prepared a pork and veg stew and had no problems. I used the simmer burner on my stove and it did a great job. The copper spreads heat well and the lid seals most moisture in to reduce liquid loss. An interesting bonus was that the copper finish did not discolor in use. An interesting and fun item

Does thi catplana pan need a wok ring?

Please describe the bottom of this copper cataplana pan. I read a review that said that a wok ring was necessary. If one is necessary or not, please explain why or why not. Thank you
Krissie on Jul 4, 2014
Best Answer: The bottom of this pan looks exactly like the top. A wok ring isn't necessary; it's more a matter of preference. Because copper heats up so quickly & retains heat so well, some people prefer not to let their copper come into direct contact with their cookware

Is there any necessary preparation to the copper prior to first use?
A shopper on Jan 1, 2015
Best Answer: I do not believe so. Unfortunately I returned the small size because it was too small to be practical for use.

I don't see anything on dimensions of this Cataplana. They're made in multiple sizes. What is the diameter?
Robert R on Dec 8, 2015
Best Answer: they are usually measured by the number of serving a pan will make/hold. If you are going to make a meal for six people you would want the corresponding pan to ho;d food for six. My AVO had six different sizes, sometimes she would use 2 pan. Hope this helps

Do you have Recipes to share?
Marybeth S on Jan 6, 2015
Best Answer: On the stove, sauté garlic and an onion in olive oil. Then add your seafood (clams, mussels, lobster, calamari), herbs de provence, white wine, and even small pieces of corn on the cob. Cover and steam until the shellfish opens. This is so easy, and everyone loves it!!!

How to use the cataplana pot for the first time? I used it for the first time in the oven it started to diffuse smoke and not so pleasant smell.

Should I rub the outside with oil? before using it?
A shopper on Feb 1, 2016
Best Answer: No on the oil. Not sure what temp you had it on in the oven?? I just soaked mine in boiling water as instructions stated and have never had a problem. I've never put it in the oven though. I also use it as more of a finishing and serving dish.
Hope that helps!

what is the correct way to season a catalplana?
A shopper on Aug 29, 2015
Best Answer: Hi -- you don't need to season it. There is debate, however, about removing the lacquer layer on it. After a variety of opinions on the subject, I did boil mine as per the brochure to remove the lacquer but honestly, I didn't see any difference. Another user just emailed me today saying she never bothered and has had no problem using it. Enjoy!!

Has anyone removed the lacquer as the brochure says is necessary? It says to boil it with baking soda, but I can't imagine what pot I can use to boil this 12"+ round pan! Has anyone used it without removing the lacquer and if so, were there any problems? Thank you!
Diane D on Jan 27, 2015
Best Answer: According to the instructions, acetone will remove the lacquer as well. From what I can tell, using it without removing the lacquer isn't harmful, but it will cause it to tarnish over time.
